US Vice-President is currently in South Korea, meeting with their acting president Hwang Kyo-ahn where a large focus of his visit has been North Korea.
“All options are on the table. North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region.” – Mike Pence discussing North Korea.

Vice-President Mike Pence sends a warning to North Korea
During a joint press conference, Pence said North Korea should mind the actions and intent of US President Donald Trump. Pence was polite, but this was a strong warning to the north.
“Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new President in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan. North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region.” – Mike Pence
That’s right, Pence basically told the North not to test the United States, and he’s right. Within only the last week or so, President Trump approved a missile attack on a Syrian military attack and oversaw the dropping of the ‘mother of all bombs’ on an ISIS tunnel and cave network in Afghanistan.
With regards to North Korea’s failed missile launch, their state newspaper has hinted that the failure of its missile on Sunday could have been caused by a United States cyber attack.
While North Korean media has been silent on the missile failure, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper on Monday began its usual tirade against the US with a reference to a “special operation” that had occurred on Sunday.
The White House has refused to comment on the speculation of cyber interference.
All this points to the United States, led by President Trump handling North Korea nicely. But the warning is clear, don’t mess with us – we have the bombs and military, we will use them!
